The remainder of the loan will be phased in over the duration of the program, subject to five reviews, the IMF said. Mostrar detalle

Making decisions

The way Elon Musk uses to make decisions.

The way Elon Musk uses to make decisions.     Utilizing a decision tree does not require a PhD. All that's needed is a basic understanding of probability. Here's a step-by-step process you can follow to use the principles in your decision making: Understand the different outcomes that could happen (both positive and negative) Calculate the expected return or loss of each outcome: Attach a probability to each outcome Understanding the magnitude of the return or loss Multiple the probability by the magnitude (probability of winning * value of win) - (probability of losing * cost of the loss) Add up and subtract all of the expected returns and losses To get started you don't need to know the exact probabilities. Just following the process will give you unique insights you wouldn't have had otherwise (i.e., the power of unlikely big bets and the risk of Russian roulette decisions). Mostrar detalle

Cryptocurrencies

How Cryptocurrencies Are Turning The Traditional Venture Capital Model on Its Head

How Cryptocurrencies Are Turning The Traditional Venture Capital Model on Its Head     The decentralization effects of blockchain-based cryptocurrencies are hitting the venture capital industry in more ways than one. Whereas the traditional venture capital industry is boring, the crypto-tech industry has become more exciting. Actually, I see the two models as diametrically opposed: one is a closed market, dominated by command-and-control practices, led by a few rich people on Sand Hill Road. The other is a widely open global market where anyone can play, and where the gains and risks are more evenly distributed. This has led to a re-thinking of how startups who are operating in the blockchain space can raise money, and it has potential implications that will revamp the relationships that venture capital firms can hope to strike with these startups. As an investor, advisor or board member, I have been closely associated with a variety of early stage companies that are tackling the innovation explosion around cryptocurrency and blockchain-based models, and have had the fortunate insights of seeing where we might be headed.

China's choices narrowing as it burns through FX reserves to support yuan

China's choices narrowing as it burns through FX reserves to support yuan     SINGAPORE (Reuters) - As China’s foreign exchange reserves threaten to tumble below the critical $3 trillion mark, the biggest fear for investors is not whether Beijing can continue to defend the yuan but whether it will set off a vicious cycle of more outflows and currency depreciation. Data this week is expected to show China’s forex reserves precariously perched just above $3 trillion at end-December, the lowest level since February 2011, according to a Reuters poll. While the world's second-largest economy still has the largest stash of forex reserves by far, it has been churning through them rapidly since August 2015, when it stunned global investors by devaluing the yuan CNY=CFXS and moving to what it promised would be a slightly freer and more transparent currency regime.
